EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

INDIANAPOLIS - Andy Reid spoke recently with Howie Roseman, Reid said yesterday, and "Howie's doing good. " Maybe you read that sentence, shrugged your shoulders and said, "eh. " But for the Eagles' information-starved media corps, which has not laid eyes on the former general manager since the Jan. 2 restructuring of the team's front office, this was a gleaming, rare pearl of information. The way most teams operate, yesterday's opening of the NFL Scouting Combine would have been a day to talk to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly about how he sees his role in the draft process, now that Kelly has full personnel control.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

ESCAPE THE confusing dissonance that now envelops the Eagles and recognize this reality: Any evaluation of the 2015 version cannot be attempted until at least the end of training camp. The team has too many unknowns . . . and too few players. So much noise surrounds the franchise. Did Jeffrey Lurie or Chip Kelly demote Howie Roseman? Is it stable? Racist? This unharmonious symphony is the work of one man, Chip Kelly, who apparently loves blue-chip players who are better known for their injuries than for their accomplishments.

THE MYSTERY of who exactly decided it was a swell idea to draft Marcus Smith last spring remains unsolved. Chip Kelly pleaded innocent last week. Insisted he didn't have final say in the draft and thinks he was in Munich or Cancun or Phil Knight's living room when Roger Goodell announced, "With the 26th pick in the 2014 draft, the Eagles select Louisville linebacker . . . " Common sense says that then-general manager Howie Roseman never would have reached for Smith unless his head coach had given the move his blessing.

PHOENIX - So the last piece of Louis Vuitton luggage has been carefully trundled out of the Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced Arizona Biltmore hotel lobby into the last chauffeured Bentley; the 2015 NFL meetings are over, and for Eagles fans, the highlight was that both Jeffrey Lurie and Chip Kelly spoke. What did we learn? Nothing earth-shattering. Both the team chairman's Tuesday session and the coach's hourlong appearance at the NFC coaches' breakfast yesterday yielded valuable nuggets of new information, they filled in some blanks and buttressed some notions.

PHOENIX - A day after Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said that Chip Kelly wanted "a football guy" to run the Eagles personnel department, the Eagles coach said moving Howie Roseman out as general manager and promoting Ed Marynowitz as his chief scout were moves made to "maximize everybody's strengths. " "Howie does an unbelievable job from the contract side and cap side," Kelly said Wednesday at the NFL meeting, "and we're just moving in a different direction from a personnel standpoint.

SOMEBODY'S LYING. The question is, does anyone really care? Does anyone care that Chip Kelly's version of how Howie Roseman lost his dream job is incongruous to the version Jeffrey Lurie put forth at the NFL owners' meetings this week? Or that the firing of Tom Gamble, which Lurie deemed "a long time coming," was something Kelly said he knew nothing of and had nothing to do with. And if the answer is no, which it seems to be to many, then the next question seems to be this: Is there a place - or need - for honesty in professional sports these days?

PHOENIX - Almost three months after Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie empowered Chip Kelly with final say over football decisions and stripped Howie Roseman of personnel responsibilities, he explained that the change was made because of Kelly's vision of how the team should be built. Lurie suggested Tuesday that the decision was less about Roseman's evaluation skills than it was about maximizing Kelly's. It became clear after Lurie's 40-minute interview that the arranged marriage of Kelly and Roseman would not work because the coach wanted to pick his own personnel executive.

PHOENIX - Asking the same question several times in different ways, to see whether the responses remain consistent, is a tactic used in police interrogations - at least the ones we see on TV cop shows. It also happens more or less by accident whenever a group of at least three dozen reporters encounters a subject willing to stand and talk for nearly 40 minutes. Jeffrey Lurie didn't say why he wasn't available to talk about the Eagles' front-office restructuring from the time of the Jan. 2 announcement that Eagles coach Chip Kelly was taking charge of personnel until lunchtime yesterday, outside the Arizona Biltmore hotel at the NFL meetings.

PHOENIX - After cutting through what's truth or fiction in the Eagles Front Office Power Struggle of 2015, the bottom line is that Jeffrey Lurie, when faced with the prospect of choosing between Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman, made the correct final call. "I changed my mind," Lurie said after nearly three months of public silence on why he gave Kelly final say over football operations only five days after he scoffed at a question on whether Roseman would return as general manager. "I'm an owner that tends to absolutely be supportive of a coach and his vision if it's a real sharp and smart vision," Lurie said later during a 40-minute news conference at the NFL meeting.

PHOENIX - So, now we know. Chip Kelly didn't burst into Jeff Lurie's office in late December and give the Eagles owner a me-or-Howie ultimatum. What he did do, though, was share with Lurie his vision of the best way to take the Eagles from a pretty good 10-win team to a great Super Bowl champion. And surprise, surprise, Howie Roseman was nowhere to be found in that vision. "Chip had a vision of how to get from good to great," Lurie told reporters yesterday in his first comments since stripping Roseman of his general manager title on Jan. 2 and giving Kelly complete control over personnel decisions.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie is scheduled to speak to reporters today for the first time since Lurie issued a Jan. 2 statement outlining the restructuring of the Eagles' front office, and as Lurie availabilities go, this would rank among the most widely anticipated ever. Lurie's Jan. 2 statement used a lot of corporate buzzwords, but didn't really explain why Lurie's closest confidant, general manager Howie Roseman, was losing that title and the personnel role that had been Roseman's lifelong objective.
